speaker john boehner who is offering an candid take on tuesday's results. it might be causing more republican hand wringing to opening the door to deal making. >>> and the british are coming. what president obama and prime minister cameron can do together to get the global economy on track and resolve serious situations like syria. >>> good morning from washington. it's friday, november 9th, 2012. this is "the daily rundown" i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my first reads in the morning. at 11:00, in the white house east room the president will speak to the nation for the first time since his election about what he hopes to accomplish before the end of the year. before taking on the new challenges though the president changed his campaign workers this emotional video from wednesday was released by the obama campaign. >> you guys have done, and the work that i'm doing has improved. i'm really proud of that. i'm really proud of all of you. and -- and what -- [ applause ] >> now it's back to governing. today the president will layout his marker for negotiations on the fiscal cliff.
wants tax cuts for the wealthy to extire. house speaker john boehner drawing this line in the sand. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. and, frankly, it couldn't even pass the house. i'm not sure it can pass the senate. >> white house correspondent brianna keilar is live from washington, d.c. for us this morning. brianna, speaker boehner seemed to be offering the president on olive branch earlier this week when he talked about the possibility of increasing revenue. but here he's taking a hard stance against tax increases. what does that say about the chances of a compromise? >> well, it may actually sound kind of like it's splitting hairs. but it's really two different things where he's talking about increasing tax rates. he says he's not okay with that. but he would be maybe okay, maybe amenable to increasing revenue. to bringing in more tax dollars, because there is a difference. and what he's saying is part of a chorus of conciliatory language that we're hearing from democrats and republicans on the hill. listen to more of what john boehner said in that interview. >> -- talk a
country. >> i want to follow up that question and ask neera real quick -- john boehner expressed openness to reductions in spending, reforms, but not structural changes, not ending the federal entitlement to medicare or medicaid, as the ryan budget would do. where do you think that goes after the election? >> i think the president really crossed the rubicon there by putting medicare and medicaid on the table. neera mentioned the budget -- hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts. romney tried to put it back in. i thought it was very ironic. social security? no, it has not been on the table. i think he has already done so and i suspect he will continue to. >> one of the interesting things about that -- we will go to the audience in a minute -- think of the context. medicare is one of the policies that transfers resources down the generational ladder. from the retiring baby boom that is 80% white and moving it into an uninsured younger population, it really in many ways -- the federal government has $700 per capita, something like that -- is striking that under such explicit attack, for kind
can do, just as john boehner and democratic leadership are limited by the broader environment. >> i am sensitive to this -- everyone in this room should read the fourth volume on lyndon johnson. it is available on cd's. it is 26 cd's long. that is a drive from washington d.c. to tampa, florida, where they had the republican convention, to charlotte, fort bragg, back to charlotte, washington. that is 26 cd's. [laughter] but i have this image of lyndon johnson spinning in his grave at the idea that there is the president of the united states that has minimal interaction of congress, especially some of his own party. let's just forget republicans and tea party people. forget them. just in his own party, wander around the hill, as all of you do all the time, and ask democratic members of congress, how much personal interaction do you have with the president? i hate giving political credit for anything, but they have that piece back in may that pointed out that the president, as of may, had not had a single conversation this year with the their kent conrad, chairman of the senate budget com
overdue. >> is speaker of the house john boehner caving to president obama's second term agenda? just three days after the election? and did he insult the tea party? >> we don't have a tea party caucus to speak of in the house. >> a leader of that movement will be here to respond. >> i have invited leaders of both parties to the white house next week so we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together. >> the fiscal cliff showdown heating up will democrats and republicans find common ground? we'll have a special report. >> nobody is surprised, right, that people are already starting to talk about the next republic ticket. marco rubleio, i think, has planned a trip to iowa. >> laura: it's already starting. rising g.o.p. star marco rubio's trip to iowa fueling 2016 speculation. mike huck huckabee with analysis. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone and the factor begins right now. _ hi, everyone, i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. we'll have the talking points memo in the next segment. but, first, our
, we have the president winning re-election. we have john boehner returning to the speakership. harry reid returning. to being the senate majority leader. and while the status quo was the big winner last tuesday, the history books will not remember the names john boehner and harry reid as long as they will remember what this re-election meant for president barack obama. >> that's exactly right. it is a ratification. it is an affirmation historically. you could argue that maybe one of the reasons he's crying is he's going to have to deal with john boehner and harry reid going forward. so there could be a very practical trigger there. but certainly, i mean, what mike and john have said is exactly right. it's an important moment. he's the third democrat, fourth democrat, to do this in a century. woodrow wilson, franklin roosevelt, bill clinton and barack obama. not bad company to be in. >> by the way, i heard you say that on wednesday morning. who was the democrat -- the last democrat before that to do it? >> well -- >> that's a test. >> -- that is a test. >> jackson? >> i guess it would
with their money. thank you for joining us. >>> last night house speaker john boehner -- also, he's not backing off his stand on tax hikes. >> raising taxes on small business people is the wrong prescription given where our economy is. >> is it on the table to talk about? >> i made clear yesterday that raising tax rates is unacceptable and frankly it couldn't even pass the house. >> at issue here is this perfect economic storm that could have serious consequences. nbc's andrea mitchell breaks it dun for you. >> reporter: the campaign was tough. victory is sweet. now comes the hard part. >> on january 1st, 2013, there's going to be a massive fiscal cliff of large spending cuts and tax increases. >> reporter: so what exactly is the fiscal cliff? it's night mare combination of tax hikes and spending cuts the president agreed to to force themselves into a compromise. so far, they haven't agreed on anything. so barring a last-minute fix at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve, the bush tax cuts expeer. the alternative minimum tax kicks in. more than half of all married couples with
and house speaker john boehner are advocating compromise, yet sticking to their guns on taxes. again, chief white house correspondent ed henry. >> even as president obama suggested the campaign is over by inviting congressional leaders to white house for fiscal cliff negotiations next week -- >> it is time to get back to work. >> he left the impression the campaign continues as the white house invited 200 supporters to the east room. for what republicans dismissed as a rally. >> we can't just cut our way to prosperity. if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue. that means asking the wealthiest americans to pay a little more in taxes. >> the president's first public comment since election night came less than two hours after house speaker john boehner said yet again today he is ready to deal. >> this is an opportunity for the president to lead. this is his moment. the president claimed one for his plan. the spending cut mixed with tax increases. >> i want to point out this was a central question in the election. on tuesday night, we found out
congress acts. president obama and house speaker john boehner picked up where they left off in dualing public appearances where both sounded consillatory, but didn't seem to budge much. must add to the president's to do list one more thing. he needs a cia director after general david petraeus resigned admitting to an extramarital affair. joining me now is robert menendez, later chairman of the house homeland security committee. good morning, senator. it's good to see you. let me start out with the petraeus matter. do you believe that this is -- leaves a big hole in military or intelligence operations or can they carry on smoothly? >> well, mike morrell, the second in charge, i think, is an excellent individual, has the president's confidence and can carry on in the interim. i don't feel general petraeus was a tremendous asset at the cia. it's unfortunate. i respect his decision under the circumstances. in the interim i believe the agency continued to function under mr. morrell. >> what kind of holes will this leave? >> i have questions about the whole matter. first of all -- excuse me
a longtime democratic members retiring and been replaced. >> and then you have the fiscal votes. john boehner manage to round up republicans on the oversight of the caucus and joined with nancy pelosi and the government kept running. they put together the budget control act. they put together this bipartisan coalition. nobody wanted to take credit for it because it was embarrassing to the republicans to go back home and say, in the end, we are running the government in a bipartisan way. yes, there will be ideological hotheads. but even among those freshmen, when they start feeling the pressure about the fiscal cliff approaching from the big factories, is that what they really want? i think it will get it done. >> it seems to me, there are two factions of the republican party battling for some kind of super mess. and it is the guys in the beltway, john boehner, mitch mcconnell, the leaders reverses the guys outside the beltway. the guys in iowa, rick santorum, the folks in south carolina who gave the primary to newt gingrich. beyond that, i feel -- ever since george of the bush's second term,
and house speaker john boehner. and analysis from the national journal. last night and democrats held on to their senate majority. harry reid talked about the election results. we will hear from republican john bellair. -- john boehner. >> i am glad to be back. it was a late night, early morning. to it is clearly we're going increase our majority. but the results show a number of things. a number of things for certain. one is that we're the party of diversity. look at the results from all over the country. i'm looking forward to working with so many great accomplished centers. i have talked to virtually everyone of them. when i came to the senate, barbara mikulski was it as far as women. now one-third of our caucus is women. the remarkable work done by all these great centers to be. but the election is over and we have enormous challenges ahead of us. they're right here. and we have to sit down and go to work on it now, not wait. this was the message the american people sent from all over and that is they're tired of these partisan gridlocks. they're tired of things like i have one go
tax rates for the wealthy. that's something that house speaker john boehner doesn't seem to be buying. listen. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. and, frankly, it couldn't even pass the house. i'm not sure it could pass the senate. >> without a budget compromise, drastic cuts amendmently kick in. that, of course, could send the economy spiraling back into a recession. white house correspondent brianna keilar is live for us this morning from washington. john boehner was the guy who said he didn't think a lame duck congress could do big things. what can be done in the next, what did i say, 53 days? >> well, maybe finding some sort of stopgap measure. some sort of framework on tax reform, soledad. i think that's the goal here. the fact is, house republicans and president obama and senate democrats, they don't really have a choice. they have to do something, and that became very clear yesterday when the cbo put out a report showing that if the country goes over the fiscal cliff you're looking at economic calamity. you're looking at unemployment ticking up, perhaps two points. you're lo
on the next 2-4 years or 2-4 weeks. john boehner says he's willing to work with the president to solve the problems facing us now. >> the president knows he and i have worked together. the election is over. now it's time to get to work. bill: governor, how you doing? i haven't heard you comment since the election. it's an honor to have you back. what's going on here. boehner is a deal maker. i'm the easiest guy in the world to get along with. >> john boehner and mitch mcconnell are professionals when it comes to understanding the art of the deal. we didn't win the elections, didn't get the senate. we have to accept the hand that's been dealt to us. if you don't get to take something off the table unless you put something on the table unless you have got a gun. we don't have a gun. we didn't get that in the election. so what we have got to understand and i'm hoping members of congress will follow the leader and members of the senate will follow their leader. you can't have every republican member of congress and member of the senate trying to create a side deal. that's disaster in the m
at the end of the year unless congress acts. president obama and john boehner picked up where they left off in dueling public appearances where both sounded conciliatory but didn't seem to budge much. you must add to the president's to-do list one more thing. he needs a cia director after general david petraeus resigned, admitting to an extramarital affair. joining me now is new jersey democrat senator robert menendez. and in new york congressman peter king who is chairman of the house homeland security committee. good morning, senator. it's good to see you. let me start out with the petraeus matter. do you believe that this leaves a big hole in military intelligence operations or can they carry on smoothly? >> well, mike morell who is the second in charge is an excellent individual, has the president's confidence and can carry on in the interim. obviously, general petraeus was a tremendous asset at the cia. it's unfortunate. i respect his decision under the circumstances. and i'm sure the president will now seek out a new cia director. but in the interim i believe the kgs can continue to f
guest: john boehner said he was looking for a golf game with the president. i do not know, talking to the obama campaign during the election, they were confronting an angry set of voters, even those who supported them. the theatrics in washington -- we have heard a lot of callers talk about this. i don't know if they have a place right now. this is an extremely urgent thing they have to address. it could have real consequences on recovery, really end it, and i do not think we will see a lot of that. i do not think the president wants to strike that tone. i think it will be pretty serious. it does not mean they will not try to get together in some kind of setting, but i do not think it will be seen the light it was in summer 2011. host: we want to thank our two white house reporters. thank you both for being here. that does it for today's "washington journal." we will be back tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. with more of your questions and comments via phone and twitter. thanks for watching. host: [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satell
with john boehner, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. is he planning on sitting down with those two republican leaders any time soon? is the white house saying? >> reporter: there's nothing announced for a leaders meeting so far. but i am certain, wolf, that that will be coming because there's such important negotiations ahead. i'm told that the president's conversation with speaker boehner was courteous, it was brief. and i'm told that they also discussed the importance of keeping their public statements vague or general enough so that they leave themselves enough private negotiating room to get a deal done to avoid the fiscal cliff, wolf. >> that's probably smart too. thanks very much for that, jessica. let's dig a little bit deeper right now with our chief political analyst gloria borger. isn't his responsibility right now though to take the first step, offer a proposal to boehner, to mcconnell, to the republicans? we assume that the democrats, nancy pelosi would go along and harry reid would go along with the president. >> well, i think as jessica's saying, the president bel
, quote, john boehner has been willing to throw his conference under the bus repeatedly. house republicans should think very carefully if the faux tan face of john boehner is the face they want for their party the next two years. they should consider paul ryan as their speaker. that is ideological shots fired, if you will. and finally in a few minutes we do expect to hear from which party maine senator elect angus king will caucus with. interestingly enough we know of no one-on-one meetings. this is exactly what everyone has assumed the entire time that he will caucus with the democrats. >>> all right, general petraeus' replacement at the cia mike morell met tuesday. he'll speak with counterparts on the house side today about the scandals, the national security implications, why congress wasn't told soon er and, also, e assume benghazi will come up. joining me now the national investigative correspondent michael isikoff and capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. kelly, let me start with you before i get to mike on the latest on the general scandal itself. congress continues to basical
with house speaker john boehner. to begin talks on how to prevent the country's economy from going over the so-called fiscal cliff. both boehner and snart majority leader harry reid sounded conciliatory notes yesterday. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's better to work together. >> boehner even opened the door to raising new revenues, code for taxes, though not through tax rates. he does put on some conditions. >> in order to garner republican support for new revenues, the president must be willing to reduce spending and shore up entitlement programs that are the primary drivers of our debt. >> so that is a shift in a negotiating position. now boehner suggested temporarily extending the current tax rates, pushing serious negotiations on a broader tax deal into 2013. while the president has hinted in the past that he's willing to include the issues of social security and medicare in the fiscal negotiations, what's not clear is whether the rest of his party is going to

gigot, house speaker john boehner, sean hannity evolved on the issue of immigration. two questions, will it happen now and is that enough for the republican party? >> it's not the only thing they need to do. it's an important threshold issue not just for hispanic voters but for asian voters. it has shrunk to 33% in 2008. 26% this time. why should chinese americans vote so much less for republicans than eight years ago? >> what is the answer? >> the answer is they're getting a message, you're really not welcome. part of that is the threshold question of immigration. look, if the iceberg breaks up on immigration, this sort on the conservative part of the republican coalition, there's been an unwillingness to consider immigration reform. it's been closed off. mitt romney hasn't been willing to address that. self-deportation. >> i don't think though that the democrats have done a terrific amount in that area either. i went to the president obama's speech on immigration -- neither party has done anything. >> greta, don't forget it took the organization, the organizing of the dreamers to
. that is a fundamental shift in stated policy from john boehner's predecessor as speaker whose threshold was that he had to -- any bill that would be passed by the house had to muster in the majority of the majority. a little more than half. it is sort of a window even in the post election period a good feeling where everybody is talking about reaching out to the other side and meeting each other halfway boehner wants his caucus behind him enough so -- >> don't you think though that in haster's case he had more blue dog conservative democrats to draw from. boehner does not. he can't get all of his people, he will have to go farther to the left than haster would have to get the same number of votes. >> the democratic caucus is more uniform in terms of its politics. there is less separating the most conservative and liberal democrat than they were even four years ago. i think that will be a challenge. certainly the democrats if they chose to wield power in pretty much the only way they can in the minority party, to not cooperate. the number of times that kevin mccarth he to go to the minority whip to say

john boehner's predecessor, dennis hastert, whose threshold -- a little more than half. a window that even in this post- election feeling of good feeling where everyone talks about reaching out to the other side and meeting half way, already what boehner's challenges to just get his caucus to get behind him enough that 218 out of 232 would vote for it. >> this is kind of a question for jason -- don't you think in hastert's case, he had more blue dog democrats to draw from an boehner does not. if boehner compromises with the democrats because he cannot get all of his people, he would have to go farther to the left to get the same number of votes. >> of the democratic caucus is certainly more uniform. less separating the most conservative and liberal than four years ago. that will be a challenge. certainly the democrats, if they chose to wield power in pretty much the only way they can come as a minority party, to not cooperate -- the number of times kevin mccarthy, the majority whip, had to go to steny hoyer, minority whip, saying we actually need this number of democrats to pass
a split and one of the interesting ways you can follow it has to do with what -- john boehner versus paul ryan. boehner is pushing for conference shame, republican congresswoman rogers while ryan is pushing tom price who used to run the conservative caucus in the house. if most of the caucus is getting behind them then it's a sign they'll dig in their heels. if they're going with boehner, it's a sign they'll deal. >> i want to bring in a democrat on both the armed services committee and select committee on intelligence and the fiscal cliff if i might. do you think the republicans will come to play? >> i believe that they will. it's my hope that everyone has gotten the message loud and clear that the american people expect us to compromise, democrats and republicans coming together to solve the fiscal cliff issue but in a balanced way and that is certainly what president obama has campaigned on protecting a strong middle class, allowing the tax cuts to expire above $250,000, but we can't be afraid to compromise but we can do that without compromising our principles. >> is part of this deal

john boehner's attitude toward any tax hike at all. take a listen. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable and frankly it couldn't even pass the house. i'm not sure it could pass the senate. so the votes aren't there. what i did yesterday was lay out a reasonable, responsible way forward to avoid the fiscal cliff and that's through putting increased revenues on the table but through reforming our tax code. >> eliot: for more on the perils of the fiscal cliff and the choices before us, i'm joined by robert reich professor at u.c. berkeley's goldman school of public policy and author of "beyond outrage what has gone wrong with our economy and democracy and how to fix it." professor, thank you for joining us. >> good evening. >> eliot: seems to me the choice is one of jobs versus short-term deficits. which is the right choice and explain to us why this is such a critical juncture. >> well, jobs has to be the choice we make right now. it is a very critical juncture because if we fall for the idea that the defici
